My treatment philosophy is to be the best listener I can be in order to hear all of the medical and emotional needs of my patients. I also strive to use humor to make the patient experience more relaxed and enjoyable.
My personal interests include long distance running, tennis, golf, softball, and basketball. I also enjoy reading non fiction, traveling, and going to sporting events.
